Via the RAC: RAC Canada Day Contest: Celebrate Canada’s Birthday on the air!

The global pandemic will most likely still be a fact of life on Canada Day, Wednesday July 1 and we want to make sure that all participants help us to celebrate Canada’s birthday safely.  The RAC Contest Committee is therefore asking all participants in the Canada Day Contest 2020 to follow the guidelines provided by the government and health officials in your respective area for any of the multi-op categories enabled within the contest. 

Unless you can carry out a multi-multi operation with those individuals who you are now physically living with, we suggest that such categories be avoided for this contest. For example, in Ontario, Canada the current state of emergency restricts social gatherings of more than five people so this would be the maximum number of participants allowed in all categories in the RAC Canada Day Contest.
